Kingham Hill School has been awarded a tree pack which The Woodland Trust has sent out commemorate the beginning of WW1.
We will receive a pack of 420 tree saplings about 20cm high. The plan is to plant these as a hedgerow along the School's new boundary (the field between Plymouth and the Headmaster's house) Once the hedge grows this boundary can be opened as a lane for walking/running/mountain biking etc.
Each boarding house will be planting trees this Remembrance Sunday as a living memorial to the Old Boys who died in the War. We would like to extend this invitation for Hillians to attend and plant a tree in remembrance. This will be taking place at 2pm on Sunday 9 November based at the Headmaster's house. Please do come along with wellies and a spade!
Gentlemen & Friends:

Mrs Judith Benson was in contact with us this afternoon. It is with the deepest of regret and with much sadness we have to inform you that Basil Benson passed away on Sunday morning the 3rd February 2013. Basil taught at KHS from 1954 -1962 and was held in the highest regard by many boys and colleagues of Kingham Hill.
